Today I was blog hopping and I happened across another writer’s thematic blog about how much she truly hates Twilight. This isn’t actually the point of this article. I don’t hate Twilight, I actually enjoy the story and series, but do recognize the flaws in the characters and do not want my children to emulate any of them.
At any rate, she had me hooked on her article basically depicting why Bella was a bad role model for girls, as well as Edward Cullen being a bad influence for what girls should be looking for. All the way until I got to the end of the article and I read “For all intensive purposes”. The first thing I thought of was, “Hey that reminds me of a ‘The King of Queens’ episode that I loved! But then I realized how sad it is that many people actually think it is intensive purposes. It’s not. It’s “For all intents and purposes”. It probably would have worked had she have written it correctly. She’s a writer.
I will still continue to read her blogs and her posts, that didn’t ruin me forever – after all, she’s a great writer. It just surprised me to see someone that writes for a living, make such an obvious error.
Have you ever made an error like that and realized later that you wrote the phrase wrong or said it wrong? (I have, but I’ll save that for another post).
